  • CSS..Ryan please help!

    I have this site I'm building using all css and I'm having a problem with postioning. The site looks fine in every browser on every platform... except IE5+ for windows.
    I'm aware of the problem with specifying widths in conjunction with padding and borders in IE, but I don't have any of that.

    That said - Is there a way to place two divs side by side within a containing shape? I've tried floating the left div and positioning the right div using a margin-left setting.. and it works great, except for in IE. When I try to postion the two divs using top & left relative positions, the right div positions itself under the left div. The horizontal positions stay correct, but the vertical position of the right div falls at the bottom of the left div.

    Any ideas?
    Does that makes sense?

      Hi there case. I found a link for some hacks for IE five to hide the horizontal positioning www.phespirit.info/cafe/css_hacks.htm maybe that can help. Maybe?

        Thanks guys... I just now figured it out, it was driving me crazy!!

        For future reference, if anyone's building a css page that has a centered containing shape and you need to divide it up in columns... just use float:left; for every div tag within the containing shape. They all line up nice and pretty side by side.

        I'm so happy I could shit!

                    Well, looks like I missed everything. Oh well, glad you figured it out.

                    Another good method is to set the centered div to position: relative; and then absolutely position the elements inside.

                        For some reason, when I try to position nested divs using absolute, they don't move with the main container div. Are you sure you can set it up like that Ryan?

                          I'm late to the party too. Another great resource for positioning issues and ie bugs/hacks is www.positioniseveryting.net

                                out of curiosity, what do you find weird about their output formats? What is an example of something that you find wrong with the software? Just curious as I'm considering checking it out.

                                Some things are wrong with affinity software, but some things are better conceived than Illustrator and Photoshop. They are working on a Indesign alternative. Their Photoshop and Illustrator alternatives...
